October 16, 2015 — Brainlab announced a major sales milestone with its Airo Mobile Intraoperative CT (computed tomography) scanner, with acquisitions by 50 hospitals in just a little over a year since the first shipment. University of Utah Health Care and Henry Ford Hospital round out the facilities to have already acquired Airo for enhanced surgical decision-making.

Developed by Mobius Imaging and distributed by Brainlab, Airo is a 32-slice CT scanner that provides diagnostic-quality images for a wide range of clinical applications including cranial, spinal, ear/nose/throat (ENT), head and neck, trauma, orthopedic and general surgery. The system is designed for use in the operating room, helping to increase intraoperative information for surgical decision-making. Its large gantry opening of 107 cm provides flexibility with patient positioning, while the small system footprint allows for easy movement around the hospital and through standard O.R. doors.

Airo Mobile Intraoperative CT allows surgeons to assess whether they have reached their desired surgical objectives. By acquiring diagnostic-quality images while in surgery, doctors can verify results as the final step before moving the patient to recovery. The versatility, easy handling and high-quality CT images of Airo allow for a non-disrupted intraoperative workflow and support high pedicle screw accuracy rates when used in conjunction with the Brainlab navigation system during spinal procedures.
